Alert when sample is 2 standard deviations from moving average

New Member

I am trying to develop an anomaly detector:

Search data...
Determine 95 percentile (or 2 std deviations from average) of last 30 min.
Determine the avg of the last 1 min.

Alert condition: avg(1min) > perc95(30min)

It would also be nice to be able to use a single graph of perc95(30min) and avg(1min) over the same multi-hour timeline.

I can get the data I want as separate series, but have not been able to integrate everything due to having 2 different sampling intervals. Any ideas?

From this answer.

Make sure you set gaps to connected under format.
